The power button is loose and it rattles when I shake it, should I replace it? But I don't want a refurbished phone :/

iPhone 5, iOS 6.0.2

    No guarantee they will give you refurbished to replace.


    But if they do, having one that was carefully reconstructed and checked instead of assembly-line constructed (and showed it) seems a better deal.


    My humble opinion.

    No one here can tell you what you should do, only you can make that decision for yourself.

    Service units, as already stated, are carefully tested to ensure functionality.


    What we can say is that choosing to live with a hardware issue because someone does not want a "refurbished" phone is extremely unintelligent.
